ten books no. 2 (new years 2014 resolutions)

[on-going documentation of new year’s 2014 resolutions – sub-section under ten books]

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage - Alice Munroi just finished book two of my ten books new year’s resolution project.

alice munro’s hateship, friendship, courtship, loveship, marriage, while not my favourite of all her short story collection, was still a very good read. this collection contains nine short stories – and of course the subject matter reflects exactly what the title says.

there were a couple of stories that were my favourite – the last being not just one of my favourite from this book, but of all the work i’ve read of hers up to date.

as usual, munro has an uncanny way of illustrating the realities of relationships.

there’s no true romantic notions in her tales. i would say that she dissects different types of relationships, both in the sense of loyalty and betrayal (and oddly sometimes both within a particular relationship).

i’ll be reading more of alice munro’s collections as i have a few more in my personal library.
